A huge R&B hit (#80 Pop) for 'The Nucleus of Soul', O.V. Wright, in the
spring of 1967.

                        "Eight Men, Four Women"
              ("Deadric Malone", a.k.a. Don Robey, a.k.a.
                 anonymous Duke/Peacock staff writers)

Intro (sung by backing vocalists):

	  Am             Dm 
	(Eight men, four women
	  F7               E7      Am    E7
	 Lord, that's the jury of love)

Verse 1:

	I dreamed that love was a crime
	I was alone, so lonely and blue
	                         C            E7  Am      F
	You know why?  Because eight men and four women, Lord
	      Am       Dm        Am                E7
	They found me guilty of loving you (loving you)

Verse 2:

	As they were taking me away
	You were taking, I saw you when you were taking the witness stand
	You know what?  I heard the lawyer when he asked you, my love
	"Do you really love that man?"


	It was eight men and four women (guilty)
	How could they  be so blind (guilty)
	Am                       Dm
	How could they?  I knew they sat there
	     F7          E7     Am    E7
	And called true love a crime     [this is what killed me]

Verse 3:

	But a tear rolled down my cheek
	I felt so sorry for you
	You know why?  Because in my heart I knew, oh yes, baby I knew
	That they would find you guilty too

Spoken interlude:

	Judge, your honor and to the jury
	I intend to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are innocent
	And true love is not a crime


	  F7               E7      Am
	(Lord, that's the jury of love)
	                  Lord, that's the jury of love

	         F7               E7      Am
	A mean judge and a mean jury, oh, that's the jury of love
	       (Lord, that's the jury of love)

	  F7               E7      Am
	(Lord, that's the jury of love)  [fade]
